I have:

18x Mobil 1 FS X2 5W-50
12x Mobil 1 15W-50.
18x Castrol 5W-50.

Not going to work for either of my current cars. I'll trade 2:1 for Mobil 1 ESP 0W-30.

Oooooh, the risk of too big a stash ... 48 quarts seems like a lot.

I would skip the ESP for PZ Euro L MB 229.51 $22/jug

Guaranteed to be, umm...similar. Maybe a 504 level formula, but just w/o the added cost of a VW cert???

More of a "bargain" than any other oil, imo.

The only oils I am interested in are Mobil 1 ESP 0W-30 or Pennzoil Platinum Euro LX 0W-30.

A 0W-30 504 / 507 oil satisfies the requirements for both of my current vehicles. If I wanted something different (and non-spec) I would just buy Valvoline MST 5W-40.
